    I always thought that but now im convinced. It has some different things on the XD but, to me its very similar. I know you Springfield lovers think im crazy but tell me what you all think

    Well, they're both polymer, black tupperware as some might call it pejoratively. But they look quite different. I think the biggest difference is the grip angle. To me, the XD is a lot closer to 90-degrees, the Glock is more raked. But I couldn't tell you the exact angle difference. The grips, themselves look quite a bit different, with just different markings.

    The sights look different.

    The slides look different.

    I'm certainly not going to mistake the two, even after just a glance.

    What, exactly, is your query?

    They each are black (most often), have trigger, slide, barrel, magazine, and grip. Yep... they look alike.

    I do see a slight similarity, frame, thumb indent, indent around slide stop and back strap stippling. JMO.

    I see a huge difference in what CHL said about the grip angle. Where's Cane with his grip angle pic? For that very reason is why I don't like the feel of the Glock. But, I am jaded...

    They look a wee bit alike, but then again Bill Murray once hoisted a candy bar that was mistaken for a piece of poo in "Caddyshack". I maintain that the distinction is valid.

    You don't have to pull the trigger on the .45ACP to dissemble it.

    And it's NOT a glock!

    Don't embarrass the XD with any similarity to the glock.

    Just ask the court.
